MarsEdit 2 Released With Flickr Support, Redesigned User Interface

Somerville, MA. September 4, 2007 (Permalink)

Red Sweater Software announced today the release and immediate availability of MarsEdit 2, a major upgrade to the popular weblog publishing software for Mac OS X. MarsEdit 2 features a redesigned user interface, brand-new Flickr photo integration, and powerful new post-editing macros.

“MarsEdit is indispensable for me,” said Guy Kawasaki, co-founder of and noted Mac evangelist. “Every blog entry in ‘How to Change the World’ is written with it, and I use it to manage Truemors. This is a terrific update to an already terrific product.”

Bloggers appreciate MarsEdit’s ability to manage one or more weblogs from the comfort of the Mac desktop. MarsEdit 2 expands on that functionality by adding features without complicating the interface.

“I am extremely pleased with how MarsEdit 2 has turned out,” said Daniel Jalkut, founder of Red Sweater Software. “The familiar Mac interface makes weblog management fast and simple, which has always been the primary goal. With new support for adding categories and editing URL slugs, my customers will rarely need to open a web browser to edit posts.”

“MarsEdit 2 provides quick access to your Flickr stream, and makes adding photos to your blog as easy as a drag-and-drop,” said Fraser Speirs, developer of the popular FlickrExport iPhoto plugin. “For any blogger who uses Flickr, MarsEdit 2 is clearly the blog client of choice.”
